Re: What was your 1st Spyderco?

I first encountered Spyderco knives in an REI catalog or in one of their stores in the late 80s or very early 90s, maybe '91. I remember it being a rescue model, maybe with orange handle (unless the orange came later). My first Spyderco is a second-hand Santoku which i've used many times a day for ~...

Re: Byrd Wharncliffe

I had to quote this in here because it is a really good picture. My vote would be for a wharncliffe Meadowlark 2. With khaki FRN just like the Kahr Arms Delica...my dream Byrd. Decided to photoshop this one up... https://i.imgur.com/1w9E5JO.jpg That looks excellent! Would definitely buy. FFG SE and...

Re: Pleasant surprises from trying things we thought we didn't want

Great thread idea, brother. It’s been interesting to read the responses. It’s a good question to consider in relation to Spyderco, as for me, my whole time using them seems to have been a progression of learning experiences. I could even say that some of the lessons are applicable to life in genera...

Re: ONTARIO: knives & machetes

Another thing that intrigued me about Ontario Knife Co. when I looked into them is that they are another of the many knife companies in New York State. I had an old "Knives Illustrated" magazine sometime back in the late 90s that did an article about all the original knife companies that originated...

Re: Rotisserie Chicken Patina On K390

Nice patinas. :cool: Yeah, hot meats seem to give the best colours. Warming the blade first with hot water also seems to aid the effect. Kiwi fruit is one of the best fruits, I’ve found for a nice patina too. I would second the recommendation of kiwi fruit. I have gotten excellent results on 1095 a...

Re: Native Chief REX45 and S90V Sprint discussion and ANTICIPATION thread! (not alerts)

If someone is able to do some comparison pics of the Chief with some similar sized knives I’d be obliged to them. Say a Military and Police or Endura comparison? I’d be particularly interested to see the top down views. Thanks. Heya Cambertree! I don't have any Military, Police or Endura models, bu...

Re: Spyderco's Upcoming New Folder? Stretch Lc200N with FRN Navy Blue Scales?

I'm not totally clear on all of this, but maybe because it is not public knowledge. It used to be that at least 3 makers in Seki built Spyderco knives. I have read that Moki built knives are stamped/ etched "Japan" instead of Seki. G. Sakai built knives are etched Seki City or some variation maybe ...

Re: Spyderco's Upcoming New Folder? Stretch Lc200N with FRN Navy Blue Scales?

Ok, thanks guys! The only Golden backlock I have is the Native and it's nice enough, but I don't really notice it as an improvement to the Stretch or Dragonfly backlocks I have. Maybe some are more discerning than myself. :-) It is possible that you got better examples (RE locks) on your Seki built...

Re: Poor experience with LC200N edge?

The more time I spend with different steels the more I think it's more about the right steel for the person than steel vs steel. I'm convinced that some steels just fit a person's use and sharpening technique and ability and will serve that person better based on those qualities, despite the fact t...

Re: Native Chief REX45 and S90V Sprint discussion and ANTICIPATION thread!

I held the base model a few months ago and I really liked it, knowing the Rex45 was coming I decided to hold out, but I've really been chomping at the bit to get one. I'm not sure that I'll get the S30V version but I am absolutely getting the Rex45 & S90V versions -- two of my favourite steels in a...

Vivi, I do hope it's really you (that would make my day) and not someone just kidding us... The thing that makes me doubt a bit: Pac Salt TWO...
